state department documents show ambassador stevens was worried about the situation predicting back in june that the violence in libya was likely to continue and worsen. in a letter to president obama they wrote -- >> reporter: the obama administration has said there was no intelligence suggesting an attack was imminent. some democrats on capitol hill say republicans are trying to take political advantage of the attack. >> do you think it's a coincidence that two days before a national debate over foreign policy they release these documents? this is pure politics, and the american people deserve better. >> reporter: also gop senators john mccain, lindsey graham and yacht have sent a second letter to the intelligence leaders saying -- the chairman of the house armed services committee says he hasn't gotten answers from the pentagon. >> i'm troubled by the way this incident is unfolding, because for all the president's talk about wanting to get information to the american people, they're not being responsive. >> reporter: republican congressman peter king, chairman of the house homela

, president ford nominated john paul stevens to replace him. in his confirmation hearings, he was not asked a single question about abortion because it was not part of the political dialogue in the way that it later or became. um, the big issue, the big change began in 1980, of course, with the election of ronald reagan because ronald reagan brought with him to washington, um, a very underrated figure in recent american history, someone who i don't think gets his due as an important person, and that's edwin meese. because edwin meese at first as an adviser and then as attorney general said, look, there has been a liberal ayen da at the supreme court -- agenda at the supreme court, there needs to be a conservative agenda at the supreme court. what was that agenda? expand executive power, end racial preferences intended to assist african-americans, speed up execution, welcome religion into the public sphere and, above all, um, reverse roe v. wade and allow states once again to ban abortion. a big part of the reagan revolution, um, was the arrival in washington of a group of young and committe
because of people like steven king people who enjoy reading his books, and you have people that like reading about small-town maine but i think maine likes fiction, stories about their state and i think you know they want to read stories about states that are landlocked. i think if i would say anything, there are people who want a good story. you often see people in maine that may be wealthy but they were where flannel shirts and they don't show off their wealth. i think people, if i could say anything about the stories, they want people that are true, not flashy or surely so i can see them relating to this story about a simple people who go about their lives. i think the writers in maine, they take them what they know. i think writers will write about memoirs, families, historical things that have happened in maine whether it's more about the sea and our connection to maine is a great fishing tradition as well so i think mainers are like canadian, they love their sees tories so i think those real stories about our past, joshua chamberlain you know who was courageous during the civil
was steven swart. steven swart says that in 1995, when phil anderson had left the team, the riders complained that the european opponents were doping. >> did you talk with lance armstrong about the need to start using epo to be competitive? >> we had -- we had a discussion about it, yeah. >> what did mr. armstrong say? >> he said if we're going to the tour, we've got to -- we've got to perform. we need the results. >> what did that mean? >> i think you didn't have to be a rocket scientist to figure it, you know? if we were going to be competitive, there was only one road to take. >> was there a discussion about doping in any way with mr. swart? >> the only aspect that is true is that he was on the team. beyond that, not true. >> you don't want to miss cnn's special documentary. it's called "the world according to lance armstrong." set the dvr, 9:00 eastern tomorrow night here on cnn. >>> if you were not watching last night, you missed a moment that has everyone talking today. one of mitt romney's top advisers suggests that clone powell endorsed barack obama baus of race. all of this comes thi
and steven and i worked very hard to get obama elected in 2008. and i will support him. and i will vote for him this year. because i think that the alternatives is a nightmare. however, i do disagree with several things that the president has been stating. i mean -- >> such as? >> which military judge will go against the commander in chief when the commander in chief, obama, declared publicly on television that bradley manning had broken the law. who is going to go against the commander in chief? come on. let's get real here. >> well, i know -- you bring up a point that leads me right into my next question. his case heads to court in february. how confident are you that he can get a fair trial? >> there's not going to be a fair trial here. >> let me ask you this. why won't there be a fair trial? because there may be a lot of people like you who support him. >> do you think that being tortured for ten months is going to result in a fair trial? a fair trial by military judges, who will not go against the opinion of their commander in chief? does this sound fair to you? >> graham nash brin
to two more important gentlemen. good morning to both of you. >> good morning. >> reporter: steven, we are saying hooray for hollywood and what they are doing. where do things stand now? >> historically, the population of oysters in the bay didn't doing very good. we've had diseases that have depleted our national population. states make a lot of efforts to bring them back, through restoration efforts in the bay and through farms such as this one. >> reporter: when did you start hollywood oyster? >> about two or three years old. >> reporter: not that old. why did you decide to go into it? >> i had been a hobby farmer for eight years, and realized i grew a tasty oyster. >> reporter: you can tell he's into it, because everyone he picks up, don't be offended, because i'm like, yeah, it looks like an oyster, but he's like, isn't this beautiful? it's so gorgeous. i'm like, it looked like the other one, tal, but that's okay. >> we have a couple of acres in the water here. you have more than a million oysters. >> reporter: more than a million out there? >> in that cove. the cove is lined with
is an absolute mess. i think -- i've heard stuart stevens as saying let's focus on the economy. i think stuart stevens is exactly right. americans don't care as much in the polls about foreign policy. but several weeks later after this, i think it's very legitimate now that the press is going in and a couple of weeks have passed since the ambassador's death, now, yes. i mean, he's got a responsibility to talk about how badly the white house bungled this. >> i think he does. and indeed, you know, i think right now, the focus is a little misplaced. the notion that -- i think the white house is pretty credible in saying that they're learning more, that their initial instiblgt -- they didn't know the situation was initially, that they've explained it better as they've done intelligence assessments, but it raises the more fundamental question which is why was the consulate not secure? how was it that security issues, as opposed to their stories afterward, these are american lives at stake in an unstable region, what are the intelligence failures? what were the security failures? those are fundament
uncovered higher than expected cancer rates among residents in a specific part of mountain view. steven stock began digging into the story and now a lot of people are asking some serious questions. >> reporter: that's right, we asked california's cancer registry to see if there were more reported cases of cancer than scientists would normally expect among the population living there. those results are now back. and they show a higher incidence of certain types of cancer. a group known by scientists as nonhodgkin lymphoma. >> here's the report. >> oh, my goodness. >> reporter: we delivered the news that many residents living in this neighborhood long suspected. >> my first reaction was, i was just really extremely sad thinking about the neighborhood people. >> reporter: after exhaustive research and analysis of three decades worth of health data, california's cancer registry found the higher than expected number of people living here with nonhodgkin lymphoma during 1996 to 2005. >> i was hoping that the statistics would not show this to be true. but when you find out it's true, it's like
alert they can. ambassador stevens sent that cable to washington, d.c. that is on september 1st. in fact, the memo went out september 4th. how is it a week before nobody is paying attention to washington, d.c. saying oh my goodness. there is problems. let's get these people some more assets. these people need some more help. >> laura: what about the republicans voting for more security against the embassies? paul ryan got stung with that last night against joe biden. was that true or not? >> in the last five years the state department budget has increased 118%. this is a question about priorities. in fact, under testimony, we asked charlene lamb, who is in charge of the embassies and security, and we asked her, was there denial of more personnel in libya a result of a lack of funding? she said. no it's a red herring. something they put out there as a strawman to try to distract. when your budget is increased 118% over five years you have to make priorities, you have to make choices. we have over 6,000 private contractors in baghdad and, yet, we barely have two dozen in libya. >> laura: a
